In Dungeons & Dragons and similar systems, clerics can attempt to "turn" undead: to repel or banish them by the power of their faith, or by wielding a sacred artifact or relic. This is derived from the traditional notion that vampires could be repelled by the cross.
Any number of films have been made concerning the undead.
In the Lorien Trust LARP system, the word unliving is used as a preferential synonym.
